The Marsh prize for the translation of Children’s Literature

The Marsh Award for Children’s Literature in Translation, awarded biennially since 1996, was founded to celebrate the best translation of a children’s book from a foreign language into English and published in the UK. It aims to spotlight the high quality and diversity of translated fiction for young readers. The Award is administered by the English Speaking Union on behalf of the Marsh Christian Trust.

The award seeks to address a situation in the UK in which less than 3% of work published for children and young people has been from the non-English speaking world.

The 2015 prize is now open for entries!

Deadline: July 30th 2014.
